THE PILLOW-INHALER CO PHILADELPHIA

This was a medicine applied to a special pillow at night for the patient to breath.

HAVE YOU CATARRH?
ARE YOU GOING INTO CONSUMPTION?
Do You Have Asthma?

By means of the Pillow-
Inhaler, sufferers in every
part of the land have been
cured of the above diseases,
and many who were for years
afflicted are now strong and
well. The Pillow-Inhaler is apparently only a pillow, but from liquid medicines that
are harmless (tar, carbolic acid, iodine, etc. ) it gives off an
atmosphere which you breathe all night (or about eight
hours), whilst taking ordinary rest in sleep. There are no
pipes or tubes, as the medicine is contained in concealed
reservoirs, and the healing atmosphere arising from
it envelops the head. It is perfectly simple in its workings, and can be used by a child with absolute safety.
Medicine for the reservoirs goes with each Inhaler,
ready for use.
